Software Development Assessor/Skills Coaches

2 for Manchester and 2 for Leeds

up to £35k plus £3,600 car allowance, private pension as well as 25 days holiday, 2 days paid Charity work each year for a charity of your choice, 3 days of additional training from our very own course selection (1,200 to be precise), subsidised gym membership and cycle to work scheme.

Are you a Software Development professional or graduate looking for an exciting new challenge? Do you want to use your knowledge and expertise to help others become Software Development professionals? Would you like to work for a training provider that offers you the chance to develop your own Software Development skills by undertaking certification and education?

As a Software Development Assessor / Skills coach, you will be managing a caseload of up to 50 learners on our Software Development Apprenticeship programme. Supporting learners through successful completion of their programme by providing guidance and help to them and their employers.

CPD Opportunities: With a very large portfolio of Technology courses, there will be opportunities to attend and get certified in courses from:

  • Oracle Java certifications
  • Agile Foundation
  • Python
  • Microsoft C# Programming certifications

Within your role, you will maintain regular contact with your learners & employers to assist with the development of those individuals and ensure they receive the best learning outcomes and customer service.  Having previous experience in a similar role would be a bonus, but if not; as part of our clients commitment to you, they will be putting you through Coaching and Mentoring training so that you can become a fully qualified Skills Coach!

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to truly use your knowledge and expertise within Software Development to support and encourage learners through their apprenticeship programme – all whilst working autonomously and managing your own time.  You will be required to work closely with the Regional Delivery Manager and Head of Delivery. The position will require travel across multiple sites (depending on where your learners are based) so having your own transport is a must!

You will need to hold a degree or higher education qualification in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Software Development, Software Design or Software Testing. Have industry experience in the areas of Software Development, with a sound technical knowledge. Certifications in MSP, MCSD, MCSA, C#, Oracle or Java are desirable. It is a given with the nature of the role that excellent communication is key, with a desire to work in a coaching/mentoring environment. Holding an existing CAVA qualification would be ideal, however it is not essential.
